Meal times can be mad times. De-stress family dinners by getting your excited youngsters involved in the cooking to keep them busy. It’s also an entertaining way for them to keep writing.

Whose place is it?
Kids love doing grown-up things. So the next time you pop out for a few things at the shops, why not let your child have a go at counting out and paying at the till?
Even mealtimes can turn into storytimes. Ask your child to create a story about the Cutlery family – with characters like Peggy Plate, Jamie Knife, Fiona Fork and Baby Spoon.
Singing counting songs such as 5 currant buns, 10 green bottles, can be a great way to help your child count backwards.
